Visting Neu-Ulm, the district seat, makes for a memorable experience. Come here for some of the best bathing, spa and wellness facilities in the area, as well as the famous circle-pattern gardens and an annual People’s Festival with an urban flair.
The town of Senden is the district’s second largest town. Here you can enjoy swimming in the local lake or indoor pools, ice skating and mini-golf in season, in addition to excellent theatrical performances at the Bürgerhaus culture center.
Further south along the Iller River, the ancient town of Vöhringen also has an active culture center called the Wolfgang-Eychmüller-Haus. While here, you will want to see the Church of St. Martin in rural Illerberg, one of the district’s most beautiful baroque structures.
The Upper Gate at Weißenhorn to the east has been around since 1470 with its two round towers making the perfect backdrop for photos. The town features an historic theater, converted for performing arts from a barn dating back to 1876.
The Neu-Ulm District’s smaller towns have their sights, too. You will appreciate the Museum of Fine Arts in Nersingen. And be sure to see the 18th-century Rococo-style abbey church of St. Laurentius Thalfingen at Elchingen with its beautiful murals and the sprawling Catholic monastery of Roggenburg with its fascinating museum.
